    Intake grate

    I have a 95 slt750 think this is ok to add.

    Will I have to adjust on my carbs if I add this or can I just bolt on and go?

    If you are looking for top speed this is not the item for you. You have an SLT (3 seater) so there should be no issues with it bouncing in and out of the water. You would not have to change any carbs with this mod. Top speed items are wedges, rideplates, and props. Save your money and search for mods to SLT's. You will find a lot of great info.

    There is an Ebay listing for a SL750 for the same type of grate, will it help on a 2 seater?

    You should really look for the short wing R&D for the 650.

    I wouldn't worry about an aftermarket grate unless you ride in some seriously rough water. The SLT's hug the water very well for the average rec rider.

    ya we know how bad you wanna go really really fast , but your motor can only push so much water an just loading it up more will just make it slower might hook up alot better but diffently a lil slower ,

    I just got my 95 SLT 750 back on the water with a newly installed R&D intake grate. I saw no decrease in top speed, kinda. The MFD registered a 5 mph decrease, but the ski itself would still hold the same speed against my other ski. It did however make the holeshot a litte bit slower. On the plus side, it never was lacking for lots of water. It also seemed to hold in the turns a little better.

    Just my 2 cents. Take it how you want.

    You are seeing the desired results, better hook up/better handling!
    The R&D will out perform the stock intake grate all day long.
    You keep the pump loaded, you have better overall speeds and of course better handling.
    Yes in some "perfect, glassy" water you MIGHT go faster BUT in any "real world" water the R&D will always net you a better overall speed.
    The speedo will show the loss due to the way water now runs past the pitot but no biggie.

    Even if I had to lose 1/2 MPH it'd be worth it for the handling and better rough water feel.
